Which 2014 College Football Recruits Are Wavering on Commitments?

    With January right around the corner, many recruits' feet start to get a little chilly during this time. Prospects make commitments, but some start to waver on their pledges.

    The 2014 class is no different from its predecessors, as it has several players who appear to be wavering on their commitments. These recruits are unsure of their decisions, which has them scheduling last-minute trips and visits.

    Florida is sweating over the final decision of a 5-star running back, while a 4-star defensive end is rethinking his commitment to an ACC school. Plus, USC and UCLA both have commitments who are wavering.


    Player evaluations are based on review of tape at Scout.comRivals and 247Sports.

Jordan Lasley, WR

1 of 6

    Committed to: UCLA

    Jordan Lasley is a 3-star receiver from California who is 6'2" and 185 pounds. He has average speed and quickness, but he knows how to use his length to his advantage.

    Lasley is committed to UCLA but still has USC on his mind, according to Scott Kennedy of Scout.com. At this point, if his pledge to the Bruins were set in stone, Lasley wouldn't even be flirting with the Trojans.

Jojo Robinson, ATH

2 of 6

    Committed to: Florida State

    Hailing from Miami, 4-star athlete Jojo Robinson is one of the best players in Florida. The 6'0", 183-pounder can play receiver or defensive back, plus return kicks.

    The Seminoles are drooling over the thought of Robinson balling in Tallahassee, but the feeling may not be too mutual. LSU, USC, Arkansas and South Florida are also thick in the mix for Robinson, according to Corey Bender of USFNation.com (subscription required).

    Robinson could get away from the 'Noles soon.

Shay Fields, WR

3 of 6


    Committed to: USC

    Whenever a school gets a new head coach, all commitments become unsure of their statuses until they hear from the new staff. Shay Fields, a 3-star receiver from California, is in a similar situation with USC.

    While Fields recently told Greg Biggins of Scout.com (subscription required) that he has finally heard from the Trojans, things still are not clear with his commitment. Fields appears to be setting up alternatives, as California and Colorado have entered the picture.


Chad Thomas, DE

4 of 6


    Committed to: Miami

    A 4-star defensive end, Chad Thomas has the ability to become Miami's best pass-rusher by the end of his freshman season. He's got a quick first step. Plus, he flashes deceptive strength in the trenches.

    Head coach Al Golden has big plans for Thomas in Coral Gables, but it's going to take a little more convincing. Alabama and Florida State are among several schools Thomas recently told Jamie Newberg of Scout.com (subscription required) that he will visit.

    The talented defensive end is still committed to Miami, but he's beginning to waver. 

Dalvin Cook, RB

    Committed to: Florida

    Once committed to Clemson, 5-star running back Dalvin Cook now has Florida sweating bullets. The speedy Sunshine State prospect is 5'11" and 190 pounds. Plus, he has a fantastic burst through creases.

    Cook is scheduled to make a final announcement at the Under Armour All-America game, per Josh Newberg of 247Sports. Based on Newberg's report, it appears current Florida State running back Devonta Freeman has the inside scoop on what Cook's announcement will be next week.

    It's time to get nervous, Gator fans.
